As 'The Seer' nears release

Swans are set to play a series of UK shows to coincide with the release of new album 'The Seer'.

Led by Michael Gira, Swans have defied (or been inspired by?) the passing years. Remaining one of the most inspiring, forward thinking bands currently active the group recently stirred into life.

New album 'The Seer' will be released on August 27th, and is seemingly the culmination of several years work. "The Seer took 30 years to make" Michael Gira revealed recently. "It’s the culmination of every previous Swans album as well as any other music I’ve ever made, been involved in or imagined. But it’s unfinished, like the songs themselves. It’s one frame in a reel. The frames blur, blend and will eventually fade".

Looking ahead, Swans have confirmed a brief burst of British shows. Announcing the UK tour, the band will play historic London venue KOKO on November 15th.

Hitting Glasgow on November 16th, the tour ends in Manchester with a visit to Sound Control on November 17th.

Tickets are on sale now.

As a special bonus, anyone buying 'The Seer' from the Young God shop will get a bonus DVD. Here's a trailer.
